Disquiet Junto 0481 Capsule Time

The Disquiet Junto activity this week asks for "something for yourself to listen to in the future."

I've been re-reading poetry I wrote last year and in late 2019, which recently led me to think about recording myself reading a few pieces aloud.

This piece is called 'Reflection' and discusses that process of recognising and resolving shadow aspects of the self.

I'm conscious that time shifts perspectives and I hope the things that seem overwhelming now will feel ridiculous and small in the future. 

However, I'm also aware that often it's re-reading old poetry that feels ridiculous.

Hopefully I'll be gentle on myself.

In some ways this feels like a companion piece for the moon video I made with my partner last year.

For the Disquiet Junto activity this week I've revisited my track 'Buoyantly' from last year.

To give it a Pig Latin feel, I've edited snippets of the lead instrument at either ends of the phrases.

The haiku shared by Naviar Records wanted something with noises like insects.

For the video though, I knew I had a piece with Storm Tempest hopping out of bed.

Disquiet Junto 0479 Truck Radio Rain

The Disquiet Junto activity this week takes inspiration from an idea of John Cage's:

“Wherever we are, what we hear is mostly noise. When we ignore it, it disturbs us. When we listen to it, we find it fascinating. The sound of a truck at fifty miles per hour. Static between the stations. Rain. We want to capture and control these sounds, to use them, not as sound effects, but as musical instruments.”

Using the three sounds identified, I've made a noisy track. 

I recorded the radio static today and found a couple of rainy videos from 2016, including one used in Junto 0231.
